    Notice that the 5% extra is not to be paid not in cash, but in shares (split 21/20) as usual.

    Yes, and normally a 21 for 20 spit does not increase returns Y/Y, but with VGR it does because the stock price always seems to recover to net the stockholder 6.73% + 5% > 11% total return.

    Another factor that should be noted is that when VGR splits it does not decrease the dividend payout, therefore future payouts are increased by 5%. It should be noted also that on a 5 year look back VRG has increased dividends on average 4.5% annually. At this rate my math shows this to be a 9.5% annual dividend increase.
